Curious Critters: Marine

Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Reception & Book Signing at 6pm
Presentation of Book at 7pm


Main Street Books is thrilled to announce that they will be hosting photographer and writer David FitzSimmons for the National Release Party of his third children’s book, Curious Critters: Marine. The party is, aptly enough, on Earth Day this year: Wednesday, April 22.

 They will host a reception and book signing for David at 6pm and move into his presentation about the critters he photographed and the making of the book around 7pm. In Curious Critters: Marine , David produces exquisitely detailed, up-close photography of amazing animals that inhabit the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, as well as the Gulf of Mexico. Through stunning photography children go face-to-face with animals ranging from a spectacular spoonbill to an incredible blue lobster, from a tufted puffin to an upside-down jellyfish, and from a baby sea turtle to a giant Pacific octopus.

“Children are mesmerized as they stare eye-to-eye with a crab, a cormorant, or an octopus. I try to photograph the animals on eye-level so kids can connect emotionally with the critters,” said FitzSimmons. “The goal is to foster children’s biophilia—to get young readers to fall in love with nature.”
